Candy Paint Job Tech: Here’s How To Do Amazing Candy Panel Paint. The Serape Mexican Blanket Paint Job.
Custom panel paint, candies, flake, and the like are often found on custom motorcycles, lowriders, and customs, and regardless of whether it is your favorite or not, and regardless of the color and style, everyone stares and appreciates what must have went into painting something like that. The truth about paint jobs like that is the time and effort that goes into them is mostly in the layout and masking of the thing. With so many layers and colors and graphics involved it can often take a hundred times longer to mask it than it takes to spray it. But there is a lot of skill that goes into spraying candies, pearls, and heavy flake. But how exactly does it really happen?
Well lucky for you, Time Warp Custom Paint is going to show us. This is a tutorial if you will and one that you can use to inspire you to get out and paint something yourself. Now I have to think that with a few spray cans and some time you could practice certain elements of this before you ever got into the good stuff, but regardless I think this could be something fun and it makes me want to try it out. I wonder if doing something like this on an old hood would be cool for the inside of the shop. Hmmmmm
